'Beauty Shop': Work In War Zones And Life With Kids

The "Beauty Shop" ladies discuss Lara Logan's 60 Minutes interview about her sexual assault in Egypt, and what Osama bin Laden's death means for the future of terrorism. And as Mother's Day approaches, the ladies reveal how they balance work and life, especially when their jobs take them overseas and into war zones. Host Michel Martin speaks with Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, author of The Dressmaker of Khair Khana; Mona Eltahawy, columnist on Arab and Muslim issues; Jamie Tarabay, former NPR Baghdad bureau chief; and Hannah Allam, Cairo bureau chief for McClatchy Newspapers.
